First twin Jenna Bush is shopping a book aimed at the youth market telling about her experiences with underprivileged children in Central and South America.

The blond-haired onetime party girl, who was nabbed for underage drinking with twin sister Barbara during her undergraduate days, has been working for UNICEF in Panama in recent months.

She also visited drought-ravaged Paraguay with other UNICEF volunteers last year.

The book, which has the working title "Inclusion," is expected to have a strong visual segment, since Jenna is collaborating with a photographer to chronicle the children and young adults she encountered.

The book is going to a be a chapter book, not a children's book, and will be aimed at the youth and young-adult market of middle- and high-school students, said a source familiar with the deal.

Talks are said to be very preliminary.

"She needs an editor, and she is willing to work with an editor," said one source who saw an early proposal.
